Overview

Only 4.5% Alcohol. Fresh and Spritzy. Lovely, fresh Muscat grape aroma, like biting into a Granny Smith apple on a carpet of wild flowers in a summer meadow.

Incredibly fresh, crisp like a firm but sweet apple, light bodied, light in alcohol, lightly spritzy... and quite delicious.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Very pale yellow with hints of lime.

Aroma

Lovely Muscat grape aromas - fresh and fruity with light musk and minty notes.

Palate

Bright and light-bodied. Sweet and crisp with fresh natural acid and a crunchy green apple finish. Light in alcohol, lightly spritzy … and not-so-lightly delicious!

Cellaring Potential

Ready to drink right now, the sooner the better. Serve chilled.

Food Matching

Gorgeous on its own or with a fresh fruit and cheese plate or perhaps a light dessert of meringue or cheesecake (just a sliver).

Winemaking Notes

The Muscat Gordo Blanco fruit was fermented with the use of an aromatic yeast to accentuate the lovely fruit characters. The slow and cool fermentation was arrested early, ensuring the alcoholic content remains low, then blended and stabilised with the utmost care taken to preserve the CO2 - a natural product of fermentation - for the delightful Moscato spritz.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Mildura region was established as an agricultural settlement in the 1880s after Alfred Deakin, a former Prime Minister of Australia, encouraged California’s Chaffey Brothers to bring their irrigation expertise to Mildura. The region subsequently became one of the most productive agricultural areas in Australia specialising in citrus, olives, almonds and grapes.

The Deakin Estate range and the premium Alfred range were named in honour of this visionary, Alfred Deakin.

The Deakin Estate property was purchased in 1967 when vineyards were planted. Initially, the grapes grown were picked and sold as fruit. Wine production on the property did not begin until 1980 when a winery facility was built. Fruit quality and wine production improved and in 1994 Deakin Estate the brand was launched in the United Kingdom. A domestic launch followed with the release of the next vintage.

Deakin Estate vineyard is located at Red Cliffs, near Mildura in the North-West of Victoria. The region has become one of the most productive agricultural areas in Australia.

There are 350 hectares under vine in the Deakin Estate vineyard. Main varieties include Colombard, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot.
